I don't know if this has been said before, but (I think in a trailer of Palutena for SSB4), this was said:
Palutena: "You won't be fighting alone out there."
Pit: "Will you send me a machine gun robot girlfriend?"
Palutena: "No, i'll be fighting with you!"

A machine gun robot girlfriend.
Pit has played too much Cave Story.

cave story's cave story isn't all that confusing (or maybe i'm just a faggot who's played the game too much)

So I built a thing:
http://www.cavestory.org/game-info/cameos-and-references.php

And to complete it I was hoping for a decent screenshot (full size png) of the Curly boss in "I Wanna Kill The Guy". I mean the only screens I can find are lossy jpegs from video thumbnails. I would attempt it myself if I didn't have to navigate 90% of the game to get to that point. Can anyone who has played the game help me out here?

I actually have a save file that's actually right at the Curly boss if you want it? I never completed it because the boss fight is so fun just to do by itself I never bothered the play the rest of the game.
And the Suite Life on Deck reference is so weird. I wonder what staff member stuck that in without anybody else noticing.

Does curly’s inclusion in the upcoming blade strangers count as a reference?

Yes. However I'm currently waiting for the game to be released first.

I have finally got that bloody screenshot the hard way, by playing through two fifths of the game until I found it.

Also Balrog isn't a boss. You find him in a hidden room and he mentions that he is lost. After that you can use the character in Free Mode.

This is what you need to do to get Balrog:
1. You need to complete Scenario 1 in its entirety to unlock Scenario 4.
2. In Scenario 4 you need to go to Florius to get the Jump Boots.
3. Go to the the Great Machine and find the Lasso.
4. Still in the Great Machine you must go to the area with the floor switches.
5. Navigate to the bottom-left floor switch. If the floor is missing and you can't reach it then toggle the top-left floor switch first.
6. You should see a wooden post across a gap to the left of the switch. Use the Lasso to cross the gap.
7. You should then lasso across a number of gaps until you come across a 1 tile gap you can't lasso across.
8. Use the Jump Boots to cross the gap.
9. There should be a door up ahead with Balrog inside.

I am sure that no-one here really cares, given how obscure this game is, but given how information on all of this was so scarce, and I went to such lengths to find it, I figured that someone would benefit from me posting this somewhere on the net.
